Officers are appealing for information after a man was attacked in Gloucester over the weekend.
The incident happened at the Kingsbarton Street junction with Arthur Street at around 11.45pm on Sunday (September 15).
The victim, a 45-year-old man, had just walked through the car park of the Salvation Army when he was approached by two men coming from the direction of Wellington Street.
One of the men demanded money and when the victim refused the other man used a sharp object to slash the victim, inflicting a minor laceration to one side of his face. The wound was treated at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
Both offenders are described as being in their early to mid 20s, 5ft 10ins to 6ft tall and of medium build.
The man who demanded money is described as being of Mediterranean appearance and speaking with an Eastern European accent. He was wearing a red baseball cap with blue stitching, a grey charcoal coloured jacket and dark jeans.
The other man is described as being of "jaundiced" appearance, clean shaven and wearing a dark baseball cap, dark bomber jacket and dark jeans.
Anyone who recognises the description of these men, or with any information about the robbery, should call 101, quoting incident 271 of September 16.
